Outputs

In order to achieve the project’s objectives, a set of outputs has been identified.

The project outputs include the following:

  1. a) Research:

Synthetic review reports per axis

In December 2015 and as a result of the state of the art’s review, three review reports will be published on this website. Each review report will analyse one of the three axis of the project (cultural memory, cultural inclusion and cultural creativity).

Synthetic vision documents per axis

These documents will develop overviews on all the Thematic Areas (TAs) discussed from the perspective of each of the three articulating axes while identifying social challenges and opportunities linked also to each of them that are beyond the targeted TA. Expected date of publication on this website: July 2016

Vision documents per thematic area

These documents are the result of a deeper review level focused on each one of the Thematic Areas of the project (see Theoretical framework). The main objective is to identify research gaps and build theoretical perspectives. These documents will be made available March 2016.

CulturalBase policy briefs

CulturalBase aims at socializing the results of the activities carried out also through the provision of short and focused documents intended for the wider public. The policy briefs will therefore summarize, in a concise and user-friendly style, the results of the different activities, including research and exchange of information.

Data Management Plan

Regarding the dissemination of the data generated by CulturaBase (mainly through the theoretical review outcomes and research agenda development, discussion summaries resulting from workshops and stakeholders conference) a Project Data Management Plan is foreseen. The strategy for data management is to be considered as an open process conditioned by the data development and the participants’ interests in a broad sense. The web, will be a key element to make the data accessible and to stimulate the participants and interested persons feedback. Follow the CulturalBase website for updated information.
